I want to transfer my sharepoint 2013 license keys in the new server. Can anyone tell me the process of it?

Can Do like below ?:

  • use the same key in the new installation
  • After successfully setup done, I will demolish my old server.

Is this the right way to do it?

Please Suggest me.


Yes, this is right way to do the thing. As long as you hold the License.

  • Build the new farm using the same keys
  • Once everything setup or migrated from existing farm then delete the old farm.
  • If i am doing in the same way, Do i need to pay anything extra for the new server? – akj Sep 27 '16 at 6:06
  • When I am using the same product key , surprisingly it gives error like it is not valid for the product. But the same product key is working on my existing farm. – akj Sep 27 '16 at 7:36
  • U don't need the new license for new server as long u decommissioning old. I am not sure why it is saying this. Make sure you typed the correct key – Waqas Sarwar MVP Sep 27 '16 at 8:19
